In the present study, to investigate diagnosis and treatment of strangulated intestinal obstruction caused by mesentery vein thrombosis on account of portal hypertension, the data in twelve patients with this disease from 1998 to 2008 were analyzed. All patients presented abdominal pain and vomiting and were confirmed strangulated intestinal obstruction caused by mesentery thrombosis with operation. In this group, nine patients underwent part of small intestine excision, and three patients underwent open-closed operation because of the whole small intestine necrosis caused by intensive mesentery thrombosis. Five patients died after operation. The diagnosis of strangulated intestinal obstruction caused by mesentery thrombosis was difficult because of the slow disease processes and severe outcomes. It is necessary to take some measures to get over the dangers duration after operation.
